Pursuit Wrestling Club is led by a family of wrestlers, the Heilmann's. Three brothers, Nick, Troy & Joe, have left their mark on the New Jersey wrestling archives. With countless trips down to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, the Heilmann's came home with a total 10 NJ State medals, including 4 state finals appearances. All three brothers took their talents and work ethic onto the collegiate level. Nick, Troy and Joe all wrestled at the division 1 level for the Tar Heels at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Joe also came back home for his final year of competition and wrestled for Rutgers while completing his Masters in Finance. With 5 appearances at the NCAA tournament, 4 ACC medals, 2 Midlands medals, 1 Southern Scuffle medal and a freestyle all-American, the Heilmann's also realized great success at the collegiate level. Troy capped off his college career by becoming an All-American in 2018, placing 4th at 149lbs. He also won the ACC title in that same year.
